There are photos posted of the interior of the Gorodok on page three of this thread.  I took these photos in 2005.

The Alexander Palace / Re: Imperial Train Station Ruins

I wouldn't necessarily recommend it, for a number of reasons (safety, preservation, legal, etc.), but, unless things have changed in the past two and a half years, it's relatively easy to climb through one of the windows facing the street.  In addition, there is (or at least there was) a doorway at one end of the station, with no door, which allows access to a good number of rooms, although not the main rooms, of the station.

I have this book.  It contains large photos of gowns and military uniforms.

The "cigar tubes" are called gaziry.

I went to the exhibit over the weekend.  It was small but nice.


Can you post a scan / photo of the cover of the DVD set?

8 is owned / run by a fellow named Dmitry Alexandrov in Chicago.  I have met him personally several times and have bought from him for more than ten years.  Everything has always been as described.

Nicholas II / Re: Photos of Nicholas II

It's a strap holding his sword.

By the way, the negative is reversed in this photo, as both the lyadunka and sword are on the wrong side.

No current plans for another trip, but I'm sure I could be talked into it without too much trouble.  My current frequency of visits wouldn't call for another trip to Petersburg until 2012.  I seem to go every 7 years -- 1991, 1998 and 2005.

No, I didn't take any video.

You're very welcome for the photos.  Let me know if I can do anything else to help.
